The Boy Friend by Mika Jolie - Book Review & Giveaway

Review by Anniek

Dean doesn’t do relationships. He does have a best friend without benefits though, Coriander. Dean and Coriander, or Cori, have been inseparable since they were children. They see each other on a regular basis and are completely comfortable with one another. Together with Dean's sister and his two best friends they're a tight group of friends. It is said that men and women can't be just friends. What will happen when the lines of friendship are blurring? Will Dean and Cori be ready to step out of their comfort zone to explore their feelings?

Dean is trying so hard to convince everybody that he and Cori are not romantically interested in each other, but his actions state otherwise. Cori is his universe, his moonchild. I felt his love for her every time he talks about her. Dean is a smartass. He is far from shy and is more than confident about his looks and brains. He might be cocky, but I liked him anyway. He pretends to be a tough guy, however, all of this fades away when he is with the people he loves. Dean is someone who will be in your corner cheering his heart out when you've won him over. I love how he treats his friends and family, for me this told me everything I needed to know about him.

The Boy Friend is a fantastic story about unconditional love without any boundaries. Everybody knows that Dean and Cori are right for each other, but they have to decide if dating would be worth risking their friendship. This story is unusual because of the fact that Dean is the narrator. It felt like I was visiting him and heard his story instead of reading it. Dean is someone I loved to listen to and I hung onto every word he said. Mika Jolie is one of my favorite authors. I love how she values the power of true friends. I know I'll enjoy reading any book written by her without hesitation, because I'm confident that it will be another masterpiece. I'm hoping for far more stories about this powerful wolf pack of friends.


The Boy Friend is a beautiful story about best friends who will always be there for one another no matter what. It's perfect for readers who like beautiful stories about friendship and unconditional love.
